Francoeur will re-join Braves for Monday night's game

ATLANTA — Jeff Francoeur’s stay in the minor leagues ended in a hurry.

Francoeur will rejoin the Atlanta Braves for Monday night’s game in Los Angeles against the Dodgers, general manager Frank Wren told The Associated Press.

Francoeur, solid in the Atlanta outfield the previous two years, was hitting only .234 when he was sent to Double-A Mississippi on Friday. He had four hits Sunday and was recalled by Atlanta on Monday.

The Braves said Sunday they will place three players on the disabled list Monday: pitchers Manny Acosta and Jeff Bennett and utility player Omar Infante. Infante hurt his hamstring while playing in right field, Francoeur’s position.
